A Once Upon A ...(please complete, I can't remember their name) Box, sitting outside Wetherby Police Station. A shell with a light inside - and the extra white panel on the door is information about Police Boxes.
Once Upon A Way Trading LTD is the name I think you're looking for Dale. I saw TPE's recast of this a couple of weeks ago and I was shocked by the quality...
Not only were the seam lines as visable as those on a space pig's trotter, but the casting was so thin that I could flex it with one finger. The window frames were just stuck on from the outside and it was so light that I could drag it across the floor.
Yes I used to work for these people and no there is no sour grapes here, but if anyone is thinking of buying one, I'd advise against it - they just aren't worth it. I suggest people considering such a purchase should go and see one first before placing their order - just so you don't get any suprises when it arrives!
I was running desperately short on fuel on a work trip from Newcastle and stopped at Weatherby on the premise that there must be a petrol station. I found one then got lost trying to rejoin the M1, but did drive past this box.
I couldn't believe my eyes so gave up the M1 and went back for a quick look! ;D
That was about 6 months ago but more recently I returned in order to measure it. I was disapointed when I realised it was a replica
That said, the telephone panel and fresnel lamp are quite authentic looking (although somebody decided the lamp needed to be blue!)
I do have piccy's but can't figure out how to add them, please help.
